Cape Town is the capital and oldest city in South Africa. With a population of about a half million people, Cape Town is located on the southern tip of Africa. Cape Town is known for its harbour, its natural setting and its landmarks such as Table Mountain and Cape Point. One of the most multicultural cities in the world, Cape Town was industrialized mostly from the discovery of diamonds in 1867 and a gold rush in 1886.
The city has average highs in the 70s for much of the year and benefits from cool to warm evenings. Beaches and hiking trails draw tourists. Water temperatures differ depending on which coast you’re on, with the Atlantic side being colder and the False Bay side being warmer. Major points of interest include St. George’s Cathedral, Cape Town, City Bowl, Table Mountain National Park, Clifton beach, Robben Island Museum, V&A Waterfront, Cape Floristic Region, Simon’s Town, Cape Town City Hall, Cape Town International Convention Centre, Artscape Theatre Centre, Grand Parade and University of Cape Town.
